Drake And Chris Brown Sued For $16 Million Over Club Brawl
Drake and Chris Brown may have to pay big for their bottle throwing scuffle at the New York City city club.
Though the controversy may have calmed down a bit, it may be far from over for Drake and Chris Brown. The two artists were hit with a $16 million lawsuit for their alleged fight at NYC W.i.P. night club back in June.
According to the NY Post, Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. filed a suit againt the two singers claiming that the two artist "shared a grudge against each other arising out of their romantic relationships with the same woman [Rihanna]," which prompted them to "fight violently with each other" after encountering each other in the club.
The suit went on to say that "each arrived with his own small army of bodyguards [and] 'security' personnel...consisting of at least 15 heavily built men trained and/or experienced in hand-to-hand and weapons combat." It then alleges that upon order of Brown and Drake, "their two posses had at each other, throwing highball glasses laden with alcohol, shattering the handles of bottles of spirits to use as makeshift knives, and even throwing full bottles at each other."
Entertainment Enterprises is also suing W.i.P. and its affiliate club Greenhouse for $4 million, saying that the negative press ruined a licensing deal they negotiated negotiated with the nightclub prior to the fight.
Both the club and the artists may also face additional lawsuits from clubgoers injured at the event, including San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker.
